Aledo's Gray leaves Cubs blue
Bearcats' all-state running back scores four touchdowns as the Brenham Cubs fall, 35-21
AUSTIN - For just a moment, it looked as though the Brenham Cubs had Aledo Bearcats running back Johnathan Gray wrapped up.
On third-and-9, with the Cubs trailing by just a touchdown and the ball deep in the Bearcats' territory, Brenham linebacker Michael Walker swept in and met Gray at the line of scrimmage, getting a hand on the all-state running back's ankle for just a moment even as his teammates swarmed.
But Gray somehow escaped, springing 89 yards for the final touchdown in Aledo's 35-21 victory here Saturday in the Class 4A Division II state championship game at Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium.
